Paul the oracle Octopus dies

PAUL the Octopus, who correctly predicted Spain would win the World Cup, has died.

Loved by millions around the world, psychic Paul shot to fame this summer with his accurate predictions of the game results.

He even became so popular in Spain that the Madrid Zoo asked to bring him in as a tribute to the national team’s victory.

But now, sadly aged two and half years, a ripe old age for an octopus, he has died peacefully in his sleep.

Stefan Porwoll, manager at the Oberhausen Sea Life Aquarium in Germany said: “He appears to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes.

“His success made him almost a bigger story than the World Cup itself.

“We had all naturally grown very fond of him and he will be sorely missed.”

Paul’s final prediction was that England would win the right to host the World Cup in 2018 and so football fans are waiting to see if his powers hold true one last time.

  1. ‘I,D LIKE TO BE, UNDER THE SEA IN AN OCTOPUS’S GARDEN,WITH A BRAIN……..
    WE WON THE WORLD CUP…AND ALL ROONEY COULD DO WAS SHOUT INSULTS AND SWEARWORDS AT THE LOYALIST ENGLISH FANS…LAUGH OUT LOUD … LOSERS……

  2. “We”? I don’t think ‘Schofield’ was an English name the last time I looked. Are you yet another Spaniard masquerading as a Brit? Yawn, thought so.

    By the way, Paul would have said “never”, as proved by Shofield’s continued rants. The truth always outs, lol.
